Chad Seegars, 20, was in a Rikers Island visitor area in February 2012 when a stranger grabbed him and cut his face, leaving an eight-inch cut that required 90 stitches on his right cheek. According to a new lawsuit, a correction officer found a way to make things worse. Seegars is suing the officer for taking a photo of his injury without his consent and posting it on Facebook under the title “The Things Tht Happens On The Island Smhh.”
It’s the lowest level since the crisis started but the 20th week of over a million jobless claims.
Bottom line: A lot of layoffs are becoming permanent at this point.
